Library Research Guide
Welcome to the HDFS 585 and HDFS 590 Class Guide. This guide is designed to help you navigate various aspects of scholarly research. Regardless of your job after graduation, these skills will help you become a more efficient critical thinker and researcher in the real world.
Librarians and staff are available by email or chat to answer research questions or to provide help with using online resources. For general questions, use our Ask A Librarian service, or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) for help. (We'll even answer your questions after you graduate.)
Library access and research materials
Hale Library is currently in a phased opening plan. For more information, see Continuation of Libraries Services and Hale Library Hours.Most printed library materials are still not available following the fire in Hale Library, but you can still use all of our online books and journals.
